Learn to Make Money from Real Estate Short Sales

Real estate. If you listen to some of the expert analysis in the field, they’ll tell you that the economy is slowly turning itself around. If you listen to other experts, they’ll tell you that the economy is still in the tanker and it’s going to take a lot time before it fully recovers. Whichever set of experts you believe, there is money to be made in this market.

Of course, like navigating your way through the stock market, dabbling in the real estate market can be very volatile and very risky. How can you take advantage of these opportunities without sticking your neck out too far? Well, that’s the idea behind Short Sale Fundamentals, which ordered up today’s review to promote an upcoming event.

What Is Short Sale Fundamentals?

Before we get to the main event that is meant to be the focus of this review, it is perhaps a good idea to get some background information on the site hosting this event.

Short Sale Fundamentals is a site run by 34-year-old Cory Boatright. He has “started, run, or been directly involved with almost forty different companies” and “many of them required good selling skills.” He has now shifted his attention to real estate, particularly in the area of short sales starting in 2004.

And now he’s ready to share his knowledge and experience with you.

The Short Sale Webinar

Boatright will be holding “a very special webinar” on January 18th (at 6PM EST and 9PM EST) where he will be “showing you a brand new system that can help you bring in $3-7K a week.” Not surprisingly, the strategy is related to real estate and short sales.

The webinar itself is free. I can’t vouch for the lessons and insights being discussed in the webinar, since I have not been made privy to this information, but there is a preview of sorts available on the site.

When you register for access to the webinar, you are offered a free copy of Boatright’s “10 Steps for How to Build a Real Estate Buyers List On Steroids” in PDF format. The first three steps are freely seen on the website and, well, they seem a little too obvious. Perhaps the greater insights are found in steps four through ten.

I Get Knocked Down

Beyond the free e-book and online webinar, there are a number of videos related to real estate and short sales that may be of interest to you.

You can gain access to these videos via Shortsaleology.com, but I do have to give you a quick warning. The opt-in page for the videos features background music on autoplay: “Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba. Most people know it better as the “I Get Knocked Down” song.

I’m not at all a fan of sites that have background music on autoplay. To make matters worse, there are no music controls on the site whatsoever, so you can’t even mute or stop the music. My biggest advice to Boatright is to get rid of the background music. It’s annoying and will deter more people than it will attract.

The continuous lightbox pop-up form needs some work too. It’s fine to have that show up once, but to have it appear several times in a single session, even after the user clicks on the close button, just annoys and frustrate the end user.

Maybe the Webinar Is Worth It

If you happen to have some time tomorrow and you’re interested in how you can make money from real estate, that webinar sounds like it’s worth checking out. He promises that you “won’t need to talk to realtors or banks” and that you can make a sizable income “with no money down.” Too good to be true? I guess you’ll have to attend to find out.
